  • Separate the egg whites into a large bowl and yolks into a medium bowl. Melt the ghee in the microwave trying not to get too hot. Just liquified.

  • Mix into the egg yolks; sugar substitute, ghee, almond flour, salt, and spices. This mixture will be fairly thick. Mix 1/2 the egg whites in on low, then fold the rest of the egg whites in until well mixed.

  • Tent the top of your bread with parchment or foil. I find this helps keep the bread from getting too brown on top.

  • Bake covered for 1 hour and check that it has baked through. Insert a toothpick or knife in the center. If it comes out clean, the bread is done. If not bake for an additional 10 minutes.
